Description
This quality rare Console table which was originally made by Morel & Seddon for the Windsor Castle and is stamped with a marque de fer under the front rail "V.R. 1866 Windsor Castle Room 251" A extremely attractive item of furniture having a later slate top over a gilt moulded edge above three frieze drawers with ornate gilt ormolu rosettes to each corner and the rear with gilt panelled sides. Having later carved gilt coloured swan supports and rear square mahogany column supports this very decorative table is fully finished to the back so can stand freely within the room and is raised on inset castors being untied by a shaped stretcher base. With possibly one of the best provenances one can get this table has undergone restorations and is offered in excellent condition with a fine colour. The partnership of Nicholas Morel, who had formerly worked for the Prince of Wales, later George IV, on his residences at Carlton House and the Brighton Pavilion since the cusp of the 18th/19th Centuries, and George Seddon, of the large and established cabinet makers Seddon and Sons of Aldersgate Street came into being in 1827, when Morel, of French extraction, was awarded by George IV the monumental task of refurbishing the apartments at Windsor Castle; his partner of choice was Seddon, whose expertise was coupled with a large workforce, as they were noted as the largest cabinet makers in London in the 18th Century, thus having the capacity to process large orders. The Windsor Castle commission was worth almost £200,000 to the company. Hugh Roberts book, ‘For the King’s Pleasure’, published by Royal Collection Enterprises in 2001 illustrates many of the pieces made for the commission. The firm seemed to have had the Crown as their main clients, with further work being carried out for William IV, although a large commission was carried out for the Marquess of Stafford in 1830 worth £15,000. Morel’s name disappears from the records in 1831, and the company of G & T Seddon, although awarded the Royal Warrant in 1832, had great difficulty in extracting the £200,000 from the Crown for the Windsor commission, which led to a near bankruptcy in 1840. The firm eventually closed in 1868.
